This review is from: Les Miserables (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
I was pleasantly surprised to find this novel a much better read than I had anticipated. As well as telling a story, Victor Hugo takes the reader through a slice of French social and economic history. The translator kept to the original novel, so no editing. Also there is a glossary in the back which explains various references during the narrative. This item arrived within a reasonable amount of time from placing the order.
